Finished by Friday 7 and day 7 of advent.

It's taken me ages to tackle a few Christmas cards this year. I just couldn't find inspiration anywhere.
Then I saw the gorgeous Christmas wreath that Gina (of Fan my Flame blog) had made. See it here in her Etsy shop- Ginxie - it's worth popping over for a look.
She made it with handmade fabric poinsettias and Christmas roses and it really is stunning.
So, I thought I would use those flowers for my cards.
I must say that, although they looked simple, they took ages to make but I enjoyed playing with my sewing machine. The photos are poor as its been so gloomy today,
 This one is a little wreath made with a collage of Christmas fabric snippets and red flowers.
 Lastly - the little hoodie that I made for Steve. I have just received a photo of him wearing it and he looks a real poppet - so snuggly and cosy. I adapted the pattern for chunky wool.
Ok that's it for today.
Pop back tomorrow for Advent day 8.
